Title: California unveils latest cannabis rules

 Welcome To Online Medical Card
California Unveils Latest Cannabis Rules. Find
Out How Medical Users Will Be Impacted From
January 1st.
On Thursday, Bureau of Cannabis Control finally
released the long awaited list of regulations
that would regulate the golden states upcoming
marijuana industry. The 276 paged document
consists major rules, ranging from regulating the
THC limits to prohibiting drone deliveries of
cannabis. Lori Ajax, the chief of the BCC is
quoted as referring these regulations as a huge
milestone and further adds by saying that
theres still a lot of work to be done. No rest
for the weary. Recreational cannabis market will
start from 2018 and with a month to go, it is
indispensable for Californians to be acquainted
with the current rules. Trust us it pays to know
the law. Weve prepared a comprehensive version
of the aforementioned regulations and its impact
upon Californias marijuana consumers. The rules
dictate much more than refraining cannabis users
to be within 600 feet of schools and daycare
centers. No more pot dealing in strip clubs and
no more transport of cannabis products on self
driving cars, bicycles and even drones!
The new guidelines make no mention of introducing
size restrictions for marijuana farms and
nurseries. Moreover, big farms will continue to
thrive in Mendocino and Monterey. 
Good news for big farms
Modified THC Limits
Heavy taxation to follow for recreational users
Licensing to commence from January 1
Good news for big farms
Edible products are required to maintain maximum
THC levels of 10 mg per serving and 100 mg per
package. On the other hand, products such as
tinctures, capsules and topical can contain up to
1000 mg of THC per package for recreational use
and 2000 mg for medical marijuana users. This
means, Californians can no longer buy
popular high potency items such as Korova Black
Bar Brownie.       
Modified THC Limits
Heavy taxation to follow for recreational users
Licensing to commence from January 1
Good news for big farms
Medical cannabis would witness an increase in
taxation too, but not as high as recreational
cannabis. A small bag of good quality cannabis,
which was previously priced at 35 would now cost
as high as 60. According to experts, taxes on
recreational cannabis can be as high as 45,
whereas medical cannabis users can witness a 25
reduction in taxes. To know more about how you
can avail tax savings with a medical card, make
sure to read our last blog post.

Good news for big farms
These emergency regulations would allow the state
of California to begin issuing temporary licenses
for growers, distributors and sellers in just one
month, thus providing the basic structure for
business operations to follow.

has imposed the following licensing conditions-

No individual can manufacture cannabis products
without getting a license.
Manufacturers of cannabis products intending sale
in the medicinal market require a prior
acquirement of an M license.
Whereas, manufacturers need to obtain an A
license to produce cannabis products intended for
recreational market.
Licenses issued would be non transferable.

businesses to commence commercial cannabis
activity. These licenses will be valid for 120
days after the date of the issue, with an option
of extending the period up to 90 days if the
business has successfully completed a complete
annual license application, available on the
official website. No fee would be charged for a
temporary license. Although fees for obtaining
these licenses depend upon the license type and
would range from 1,205 to 77,905.

A medical card- A must have for every Californian!
Gifts and product giveaways are not allowed for
recreational marijuana users. On the other hand,
medical users are exempt from this restriction
under certain circumstances. Recognizing the need
for low cost, easier access to cannabis for
veterans and lower income individuals, this is a
huge step forward for Californias cannabis
consumers. Furthermore, medical card holders will
get twice the THC limit prescribed for edibles as
well. On top of that, medicinal user will also be
eligible to carry cannabis products with them on
a plane. While searching for a reliable,
professional and experienced team of medical card
providers, place your trust in only the best.
